What's important is that all the individual cells in a battery bank should be of equal size (and age).
I haven't seen this criterion before. It doesn't fit as a major concern with what else I have seen or my experience.

Why not make two separate battery banks with a battery selector.
you loose effective capacity. I'd refer you to my explanation but I see some here who blew a fuse on my attempts to explain the phenomena. So check Splitting battery banks for a more direct calculation.
